Truth is we actually did enjoy having Rafi in Hawaii and BA but we also enjoyed leaving him with Bubby and doing Paris, LA, and BA again without him.
Just very different trips of course.

We must have very different kids. We did LA -SF with our 9 month old daughter and said "never again". She decided to get sick in Hollywood on Friday and we had to find a pediatrician to see her.. Then I realized that although we like traveling, she prefers being home (or by relatives). And that is exactly where  she goes when we travel.

Not really fair to judge that based on one trip where she got sick.
I'd try again.

in my defense, that was a recent development on the Australia trip. prior to that, it didnt happen. and i did leave them at a pretty decent resort... (not to take away from my wife for allowing it, but in case people think im nuts)

I don't blame you one bit, I'm just amazed you found the one woman in the world that would go along with that plan without qualms.

I'd try again.

I've done other shorter ones.

The whole trip revolves around nap time/diaper changes/bored kid, hungry kid, tired kid, yelling in museum kid, trying to get lost kid, tantrumming kid,/ sleeping kid etc. etc.

It is totally not worth it. You can't go anywhere at night for the thirteen hours the kid is sleeping. You need to make hotel arrangements that include separate area for the kid and things to entertain her/him. We took her on a few flights and I felt very sorry for the other passengers although the flight attendants loved her.

Her tantrum on line to get through airport security was such a -spectacularly humiliating- horrible experience it for sure wiped away most of my sins.
